that are no intensely democrat like new york and california, and you have states that are intensely republican bike texas and alabama there should be a pretty substantial offset there. whatever the reality in that dozen or so 11 or 12 swing states, whatever the reality is the much wanted ground game, the argument that we heard from chicago over and over again, that they might lose on election day but they'll win the election because of early voting doesn't seem to be shaping up that way, that's why we are in the final days of this election in a dead head. megyn: karl rove talked about ohio and early voting and absentee ballots that were requested. he says back in 2008 barack obama his margin of victory -- start with me on the bottom of this graphic you're seeing. obama's margin of victory in 2008 it was 260,000 votes. i'm rounding. he says already in ohio we've seen a swing towards the republican that has wiped out almost all of obama's margin of victory in the early voting or the number of absentee ballots cast for requested. he says, look the democrats 531,000 votes have already been cast or abse

states, california, nevada and florida, have already made self-driving vehicles legal as long as the human's sitting in the driver's seat in case of a emergency. that's a good idea. meanwhile, these cars could lose worker productivity. the average commuter spends 250 hours a year behind the wheel. or they could come in handy after you've had a couple cocktails. self-driving trucks could transform the trucking industry. picture long lines of self-driving 18-wheelers traveling down the highway just a few inches apart, no drivers, no stops for gas or food, it could boost fuel efficiency as much as 20%. we're going to need to keep driving ourselves though for a while longer. experts say the driverless cars should be more common in another ten to 15 years when the costs come down. here's the question, how would you feel about riding in a car that drives itself? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a comment on my blog. or go to our post on the "the situation room" facebook page. i don't know if i'd trust a car to drive itself. >> me either. i wouldn't feel good about it at all, jack. n
